Kit Kittredge: An American Girl Mystery and other stories...

Film If you thought this year's slate of film releases looked tired take a look at next year which includes an iteration of the ever popular 'Movie' (Epic Movie, Scary Movie etc) series with Superhero Movie, a film version of Get Smart, another James Bond film already and a remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still which is bound to commit the crime of not featuring the words 'Klaatu Barrada Nicto' because Brett Ratner or whichever hack they get to direct it thinks it sounds 'kinda funny' and 'not in keeping with what modern audiences want' or whatever twaddle is spun on the inevitable dvd director's commentary which will also suggest that they're also 'a big fan of the original'.

There is however The Dark Knight, Iron Man, whatever the new Indiana Jones film is going to be called, Hellboy 2 and the wonderfully titles Kung Fu Panda which is bound not to live up its name -- oh and absolutely no sign of any films made for adults. I'm already salivating at the prospect of Mark Kermode's review of the ungainly titled The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2.
